Inspired by DYPLED, this Wristwatch Uses BPW34 PIN Photodiodes, Supercapacitor for Power

Peter Misenko’s wristwatch is one-of-a-kind with a 25x8mm 3V 5F supercap as the power source, mounted in such a way that the backplate of the watch is essentially flat (and surprisingly thin!):

Check out the full wristwatch project here and the DYPLED project that inspired this build (and perhaps your next thin LED display project!) here.

5 years of watch development in one master piece of hardware

Features:

– BPW34 solar cells … plastic, small, unbreakable
– ultra High effective step up converter 95% wint minimum 0.4V working voltage
MAX1724 – Thanks for samples form Maxim Integrated
– custom led 4014 display, inspired by https://hackaday.io/whygee https://hackaday.io/project/8693-dypled project
– Supercapacitor capacity gauge

– Supercapacitor can be charged with USB or SUN


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
